PLPCHey! I’m Karissa – a creative-turned-counselor who helps other creatives with the unique mental and emotional issues they face. I’m committed to doing bottom-up therapy with my clients – meaning I want to help you find the reasons behind the day-to-day struggles you experience and help you find deep and lasting healing.
PLPCI began my journey into the mental health field at the University of Missouri – St. Louis with a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology. Afterwards, I completed my Masters of Arts in Counseling degree at Lindenwood University. During that time, I was an intern at CCCA – which led to me to being a private practice clinician there upon graduating.
